George Rickey

Saint Paul, MN

“George Rickey (American, 1907–2002) was best known for his kinetic, steel sculptures. Born in South Bend, Indiana, Rickey studied history at Oxford University, and developed an interest in art while taking classes at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art. Rickey continued his studies in Paris at the Académie Lhote and Académie Moderne under Fernand Léger and Amédée Ozenfant. After teaching for several years, Ricky served in the Army Air Corps during World War II as an engineer. While he worked to improve aircraft weaponry, Rickey became familiar with mechanical construction techniques that he later translated into his sculptures.”
